Adding an email account

To add an email account under your domain, such as help@example.com, first log into your cPanel and look for this icon:



That would then bring you to this page:



Email: Choose the name for the email holder. In the above example, it is 'help'.

Password: Choose a password.

Mailbox quota: Choose how much space you would like to allocate to this email. Unlimited here simply would refer to the maximum disk space in your account.


After creating the account, you can access your email via 'webmail' in your cPanel, or through an external email client such as Thunderbird or Outlook.

To access your mail via an external email client, make sure to set the server name to server.hostawesome.com and connect via SSL ports.
